You want PC-Scheme from Texas Instruments.  Retail from TI in Dallas is
about $95, and there are substantial educational discounts.

TI's implementation is very fast, has gobs of good features (including
understanding '87 chips, expanded and extended memory, etc.), suffers only a
handful of bugs, and is wonderfully documented.

Unless you're _really_ short on cash, it's not worth messing with anything
else.  Good luck.
